Where can I get a Pantone Wallet?

Where can I find a pantone wallet or something similar?

I searched metafilter for a nice, stylish mens wallet and came across the pantone wallet. http://www.uncrate.com/men/style/wallets/pantone-wallet/

I cannot find anywhere to purchase them online, so i'm thinking they were discontinued. Does anyone know where I could purchase one of these wallets or recommend a similar wallet? I'm really into vibrant colors!

They do indeed look discontinued. Too bad, they look awesome to me too.

Google shopping searches for '[color] men's wallet' is bringing up some interesting ones, (oh god neon green leather) depending on how long you want it to last and how much you're willing to pay.

You used to be able to get that kind of stuff at the MoMa Store, and similar museum-y places. Now all I see there are the Pantone mugs. There's some other Pantone stuff at Pantone Universe, but I don't see wallets.

Besides it saying "Pantone" on the side, it's just a blue wallet. Do you need it to say "Pantone" on the side or something?

No, it also gives the Pantone value for that shade of blue. It's clever and amusing if you're a print nerd.

I thought* I saw a wallet on the Pantone table at the MoMA last week, so it might be worth a call to the store itself (as opposed to going through the catalog/online shop, which I assume checks inventory from a warehouse).

(*Could be wrong about this, as I was being dragged away by children and did not really get to enjoy my experience. Bitter.)

If you're just looking for interesting & eye-catching with a pop of colour, I'd suggest Etsy; there are some colourful "shirt & tie" ones at this shop or this vibrant one from this shop.

Love the pantone one myself though, definitely a cool printing related item.

Well, here's the equivalent business card holder that I suppose could be used as a small wallet. Same concept (PMS# = color of wallet).

And here's a huge selection of related Pantone-coded products (wallets, bags, etc.)
